Doing a bit more reading, it looks like Google won't support SREG, but
are supporting AX, which seems to be the way places are going. Does
the current Catalyst OpenID Auth support AX?

Fudging the format for the SREG query, I tried:

               extensions => {
                  'http://openid.net/srv/ax/1.0' => 1
               extension_args => [
                       required => 'email',
                       'type.email' => 'http://schema.openid.net/contact/email'

...but got nothing back from the providers I tried.
